Knowing information is key in any situation. Monitor the status of your
system in real-time with a convenient graphical overlay displayed right on
screen with OSD Monitor. It allows you to view POST codes in real-time, complete
hardware status and even the readout from VGA Hotwire and Subzero Sense, all at
a pure hardware level.
Tweak the parameters of your system in real-time with a convenient graphical
overlay displayed right on the screen with OSD TweakIt. It provides you with a
set of critical and hardware-driven functions so you can tweak your system
An industry first, ASUS has place Thunderbolt I/O technology onboard its
motherboards, and are set to revolutionize the speed at which peripherals and
displays operate. Featuring a maximum bi-directional speed of 10 Gbps,
Thunderbolt is 2 times faster than USB 3.0 and an incredible 20 times faster
than USB 2.0. And with the ability to daisy-chain up to six devices without the
need for a hub or switch, that means less overheard for a clutter free computing
experience. For example, users can connect multiple native Thunderbolt storage
devices, an HD video capture device and even an HD display to a single
Thunderbolt chain while maintaining maximum throughput.
Love to overvolt but got mad trimming the tiny variable resistors? With the
VGA Hotwire feature, plug the two-wire cable onboard and solder two wires on the
VGA's voltage regulator and accurately adjust the voltage, taking your system to
the next level while avoiding some risks.
Love overclocking in LN2 mode, but have trouble finding out just how cold
your board is? Worry no more, with Subzero Sense you can read the system’s
temperature even in its coldest subzero degrees temperature.
mPCIe Combo + Dual-band Wi-Fi / Bluetooth 4.0
Hook up immediate extra connectivity to the ROG motherboard and say so long
to physical limitations. The unique Combo attaches to the motherboard near the
rear I/O , and comes with one mSATA port supporting Intel® Smart Response
Technology hybrid storage acceleration with compatible mSATA SSDs, and a dual
band 2.4/5 GHz Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth v4.0 card bundled into its
mini PCI Express 2.0/USB 2.0 combo port on the opposite side. This way, you can
connect extra devices without taking up valuable space on the motherboard, and
get the best of both worlds: for better connectivity and expandability without
sacrificing essential features.
Monitor the status of your desktop PC and tweak its parameters in real-time
via a notebook—just like a race car engineer—with ROG Connect. ROG Connect links
your main system to a notebook through a USB cable, allowing you to view
real-time POST code and hardware status readouts on your notebook, as well as
make on-the-fly parameter adjustments at a purely hardware level.

performance and system load. This allows users to fully utilize 3x faster video
conversion with Intel® Quick Sync Video 2.0 technology while retaining high-end
3D rendering and gaming performance, provided by both NVIDIA® and AMD graphic
cards. When the discrete graphics card is not required, power consumption goes
automatically down to near zero, making the system more
environmentally-friendly. For users searching for perfection, LucidLogix Virtu
MVP provides great graphical performance and the best flexibility and
PCI Express® 3.0
PCI Express® 3.0 (PCIe 3.0) is the latest PCI Express bus standard with
improved encoding schemes that provide twice the performance of current PCIe
2.0. Total bandwidth for a x16 link reaches a maximum of 32GB/s, double the
16GB/s of PCIe 2.0 (in x16 mode). As such, PCIe 3.0 provides users unprecedented
data speeds, combined with the convenience and seamless transition offered by
complete backward compatibility with PCIe 1.0 and PCIe 2.0 devices. PCIe 3.0
will become a must-have feature for users who wish to improve and optimize
graphic performance, as well as have the latest technology available to them.
